The 74th Annual Golden Globe Awards…and the Winners Were…

'Moonlight,' 'La La Land,' 'The Crown,' 'Atlanta' and 'The People v. OJ Simpson' Take Top Honors

“Moonlight” and “LA La Land” were named Best Motion Picture Drama and Musical or Comedy at the 74th Annual “Golden Globe Awards,” hosted by Jimmy Fallon. Top honors on television went to Netflix’s “The Crown” for Best Drama, FX’s “Atlanta” for Best Comedy, and FX’s “The People v. OJ Simpson” for “Best TV Movie or Limited Series.” But the big moment, hands down, was Meryl Streep’s blistering anti-Donald Trump comments when accepting the Cecil B. DeMille Award.

“There were “many powerful performances this year, but there was one that stunned and sank its hooks in my heart,”
she said. “Not because it was good. There was nothing good about it. But it was effective, and it did its job. It made its intended audience laugh and show their teeth. It was that moment when the person asking to sit in the most respected seat in our country imitated a disabled reporter — someone he outranked in privilege, power, and the capacity to fight back.”

“It kind of broke my heart when I saw it, and I can’t get it out of my head, because it wasn’t in a movie,”
she added. “It was real life. And this instinct, to humiliate, when it’s modeled by someone in the public platform, by someone powerful, it filters down into everybody’s life, because it kind of gives permission for other people to do the same thing. Disrespect invites disrespect. Violence incites violence. When the powerful use their position to bully others, we all lose. We need the principled press to hold power to account, to call him on the carpet for every outrage.”
